“Can’t meet men. Maybe it’s your outfit . . . ” So begins a story in Women’s Wear Daily about a new t-shirt conversation that aims to spark conversation between single men and women with slogans like “Boy Scouting” and “Just Ask Me.” Would you wear one of these Single Tease t-shirts? Why or why not? Which of the slogans would you be most or least likely to wear?
The idea behind these shirts intrigues me. I hate the way that we’re all so encased in our own private bubbles when we see an attractive stranger in line at a cafe or on the bus. On the other hand I would be mortified to wear most of them. I’d feel too available, too open to anyone. “Hello” is OK–it’s a bit more neutral and friendly and not too demeaning to the shirt-wearer.
